You should find a mess of lumber and whittle up a working quadruple mass spectrometer or retractable hardtop convertible automobile.   Make it a bit challenging. 

I actually own a retractable hardtop convertible automobile.  Took the easy way out, instead of building it myself I plunked down cold hard cash for it back in 2000. More costly, but probably wouldn't have lasted the 19 years it has (it's a '99, bought it 2 years old).

Tigers losing 4-0 in the 1st. Smoky skies from forest fires a couple of hundred miles away makes outdoor exercise uncomfortable. The library has reduced Sunday hours in the summer. Vancouver's Pride Parade starts in 1 hour a block away from my home.

C'mon, I'm running out of good options!

BTW, thanks for sending that smoke all the way down to Seattle :-). Can't do much outside because of it.

No, this is good.  Another reminder to just pay Sanchez his buyout and have him go away. Bring up Farmer and give him 8 starts to figure out if he can be counted on in any capacity next season.

Hey, this is my team and they always will be. But if I lived in an alternate universe where I could simply switch squads I would be fine with replacing the Tigers with the Miami Marlins roster and organization. They have the same record as the Tigers but they are more fun.  They don't have a position player who is over 30 and average 26.75 years old. Stanton, Ozuna, Bour, Gordon. This is a nice team. Yelich seems like he could be stocking shelves at a grocery store and looking forward to his senior year in high school.  I just switched over and started watching their game and it's like the clouds parted and the sun started shining.

Boise Idaho is covered with the same haze.  It's been like this every summer the last few years.  You can't even see the foothills of the mountain range that is actually five minutes from the state capitol.

can I say that the chick in the HUMIRA commercial appears like she'd be complicated.

I know it's only one start and he had been doing fairly well recently, but this has to be the nail in the coffin, doesn't it? With the way the ball flies out anymore, I can't see justifying Anibal continuing to get more chances. Like you said, pay him and move on.

My young girlfriend on the sly, Miami Marlin, just wrapped up a 4-1 win against Atlanta based on two first inning homers by someone not named Stanton. Yes, life is good.  How are you kids doing over here with your mom?  If she still breaking your heart like she broke mine?

Forget the bad pitching for a moment, how the heck do the Tigers only have 1 run and 11 hits and 3 walks.  Of course they can only score via the HR.  

I'm really hoping that they can change that next year. I think that buying out Martinez might help a bit with this, but we shall see.

This season is your torment for not loving Mister Illitch enough.

Baltimore is kinda playing like dicks this inning.  Taking all the extra bases with the big lead.

Maybe Rondon should be warming up?

Was thinking of maybe having Kevin Rand come out and throw the last two innings.

Not really. If a guy can give you strings of 3-4 good starts but then blows up once in between, that makes him a #3-5 starter in this league. With guys near the end of rotation, I don't really care how bad they are when they are bad, only how good they are when they are on and how often they are on. You can only lose each game once. If I have to carry a guy with a 6.00 ERA, I'd rather it be a guy who pitches well twice and get's bombed twice than a guy who gives up 6 every time and losses them all. xD

Obviously I don't know what Anibal will do the rest of the way, and personally I expect it will be bad, but at least recently his ratio of good to bad has been good enough I'm not reading too much into today as a one of. 

More concerned/disappointed that Jimenez seems to have no clue. Hard to know what to do with a guy that dominates at one level but seems so lost at the next.
